It is so important to have an initial consultation with your surgeon. Many people read online and decide what surgery they want, without seeking medical advice and then ask for prices. However, it is vital that you attend an initial consultation first to assess what surgery option is appropriate for YOU.

During an initial consultation with Dr. di Mauro, he will listen and consider your reasons for having surgery and your expectations. This assessment is just as important as the physical assessment of your body.

After you have finished your consultation, you will have all the information you need to make a choice about the surgery. Here are some questions you might want to ask when considering the best treatment for you.


1.How will I know if my surgery was successful?

First, define what “successful” means to you. What are your goals? What do you want the procedure to achieve? It may be that you want fewer wrinkles, or a smaller nose, for example.

Understanding your goals will help you to achieve them, but don’t worry if you’re not sure which exact changes will help you to look you best, this is why having a consultation with Dr. di Mauro is so important.


2.What procedure will most help me achieve my goals?

Earlier, we advised you to take time to reflect on your cosmetic surgery goals. Your initial consultation is the perfect time to bring them up. To ensure you achieve the best results, we insist on an initial consultation so that we can understand exactly what your goals are and can design a treatment plan specially to achieve them.

There may be alternatives to the treatment you originally wanted, for example, filler may be a better option for you than a facelift as surgery might not be necessary to achieve the look you want.


3.Am I a good candidate for this procedure? If not, what would you recommend?

Maybe you´ve always wanted a breast augmentation and finally you have worked up the courage to get it done. That´s excellent, but sometimes it doesn’t hurt to slow down for a moment and discuss your goals with your surgeon.

There might be a treatment alternative which saves you a bit of money, has a reduced recovery time or is non-invasive. You may have had your mind set on having breast implants, but a breast lift would be more appropriate.

Trust that the most qualified surgeons will have an eye for plastic surgery and be able to “see” what results would work best for your age, skin, and unique bone structure.


4.What will my recovery be like?

This question can be broken into three parts:

  • How long your recovery period will last and when you can resume normal activities
  • What your limitations will be
  • What side-effects you may experience


It’s important to understand exactly what to expect in order to avoid aggravating the healing process or confusing harmless side effects with more serious complications.

It may be that the procedure you originally wanted doesn’t fit in with external factors, such as work commitments, family commitments or your lifestyle in general. At your initial consultation, Dr di Mauro will explore all options with you, as there might be a less invasive procedure with a shorter recovery time that can still achieve your cosmetic surgery goals.


5.How long will the results last?

This is a very common question and one you have probably been wondering about. Dr di Mauro will discuss realistic expectations with you and go through the steps you can take to prolong the life of your new look, helping you to achieve the best results. Of course, these questions only scratch the surface. During your initial consultation, don’t be shy to ask any queries or follow-up questions you may have. Be curious and diligent- no question is too big or small!
